After lengthy research into my own family tree (James) I am now doing my husbands. I think communication must have been a problem with this family because noone knows anything!! I know that my husbands grandfather was Michael Doolan b. c1884 who married Annie Hay in 1907. He died of TB in 1928 aged 45. His father was also Michael Doolan born in Ireland and married Bridget, they were both dead at the time of Michael and Annies wedding. Annie was the daughter of Alexander Hay and Jane Smith of Scotland.
If anyone has any info on the irish roots here it would be much appreciated.
